2010 Toyota Sequoia Reviews

Vehicle Overview
The Sequoia is Toyota's largest SUV, and the full-size model was redesigned for 2008. The Sequoia is available with a choice of V-8 engines, including a new 4.6-liter V-8 and a more powerful 5.7-liter V-8. When properly equipped, the Sequoia can pull 10,000 pounds and seat up to eight people.

The Sequoia comes in three trim levels: SR5, Limited and Platinum. Competitors include the Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford Expedition and Nissan Armada.


New for 2010
For 2010, the Sequoia gets a new base 4.6-liter V-8 engine, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Other enhancements include standard driver and passenger knee airbags, Bluetooth and a USB port for MP3 players.

Exterior
The Sequoia sports a two-box shape, but it doesn't have bump strips on the side doors. Like the Toyota Tundra pickup truck, the Sequoia wears a large chrome grille.

Interior
The Sequoia can accommodate up to eight people in its three rows of seats, which can be covered in either fabric or leather. The second row slides out of the way when you lift a lever, making it easy to get to the third-row seats. Large air conditioning knobs dominate the middle of the dash. For 2010, both Bluetooth and an audio USB port are included as standard equipment.

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
